    Verify that /etc/hosts contains an entry for your computer.

    /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 machinename localhost

    This should allow any network-aware application like XFree86 to properly run
    without a real netwirk interface enabled. Also, check the order in which
    name resolution is performed in /etc/resolv.conf.
